Fantasy football: Which 49ers to start and sit against Jacksonville Jaguars?

SANTA CLARA – Here’s who to start and sit when the 49ers (4-5) visit the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7):

START HIM: WR Deebo Samuel

As tempting as it is to list running back Jeff Wilson Jr. here in his possible 2021 starting debut, Samuel is a sure-thing in this offense. He should eclipse 1,000 receiving yards on the season – needing just 21 yards – and he could carry the ball more from the backfield to help there. Samuel battled through a calf injury last month, and now he has a shin bruise but should be OK.

Three other nominees: RB Jeff Wilson Jr., TE George Kittle, K Robbie Gould

SIT HIM: RB Elijah Mitchell

No one is questioning his toughness. But everyone is talking about it a lot. That’s because he’s coping with his fourth injury in as many months. After Tuesday surgery on a fractured finger, he shouldn’t be rushed back, and not after a career-high 27 carries.

Three other nominees: None. If you have a 49er in your lineup and no alternative, go for it.
